It's important to note that DRS can only be activated on certain parts of each track, it isn't available immediately at the start of a race or after the safety car is recalled, and it cannot be used when racing in heavy rain (thanks to MCR DANGERDAYS for pointing that part out). The easiest way to get this achievement is to start up a race at 10% or more of the full length. Make sure you don't take first place (or if you do, the car in second is very close behind you) through the third lap. Once you hit the third lap, DRS will be activated. Make sure you stay close behind the car in front of you. Once you get into the DRS zone (the DRS icon on the HUD will light up green), hit the Y button (default DRS button for the controller) and slip stream off of the car in front of you until you get enough speed to overtake them. If you're quick enough and close enough, you should be able to overtake the car in front of you and the achievement will unlock immediately.

I was able to unlock this one easily at Australia. The DRS zone is throw the straight at the very end/beginning of each lap. It's long enough that if you're close to a car in front of you, you can have the DRS as well as the KERS (hit LB) going at the same time. I was able to overtake the car in front of me easily by the end of the DRS zone (which is right before the first turn).
